LIMERICK — Township residents will see their taxes increase slightly this year as the board of supervisors voted to approve the proposed budget with no changes.
Although taxes will increase 25 percent, as they did in 2012, the raise is actually less than half a mill. The rate went from 1.516 mills to 1.895, meaning a property in the township assessed at $150,000 would have a year-total tax increase of $56.85.
The $8,010,752 budget was approved 3-1 at a Dec. 18 meeting. Thomas J. Neafcy Jr. was the sole vote against the budget. Kenneth J. Sperring Jr. was not at the meeting, according to township manager Dan Kerr.
